  • I stick it to the mailman
    I'm pinned against a pot plant
    I'm sick of all the sun-tan
    Oily with the Ray-Ban

    Take that to the bank and call it a check
    Masked without a weapon

    I'm skinny as a spit pan
    Dealing with the shit plan
    Playing with my bad hand
    Just another rock band

    Take that to the man and call it a check
    Trapped within a contract

    Hey there boy, while you were catching the black widow
    The rest of us were watching Melrose

    I wanna swim in a watershed
    I wanna listen to Flowerhead
    I lost a gallon and still bled
    I keep on thinking I get ahead

    Pissed at all the disc jam
    Pissed about the five ham
    Pissed about the green state
    I miss it, and I can't wait

    Take that to the man and call it a check
    Trapped within a contract

    Hey man, can't you tell it's still a problem?
    See you at devil's tower

    I wanna swim in a watershed
    I wanna listen to the Flowerhead
    I lost a gallon, I still bled
    I keep on thinking I get ahead

    Pissed at all the disc jam
    Pissed about the five ham
    Pissed about the green state
    I miss it and I can't wait Writer/s: David Grohl
